No, that column’s for next week. But for now, I’ve been passed this message from Bryan Hitch to his fans:
“Just to keep you all up to date, I’m going to be writing and drawing a twelve page story for an Authority special. It’s my first full writing assignement,and I enjoyed it very much. I’m quite happy with the results, and am looking forward to drawing the story as soon as the JLA work is complete.”
Briefly followed by:
“It has so far been a very relaxed transition into writing, and the first (I hope) of many such experiences.”
“Actually, I had expected it to be more difficult than it was. I just sat down to make some notes and instead found the story happening entirely without effort.
“Warren used to describe a similar penomenon on the Authority, especially when writing for Jenny, which by coincidence my story also features.
“It’s only a 12 page story, so it isn’t a major feature or anything, so I’m sure that further efforts may prove more difficult.
“I have always wanted to write for as long as I’ve wanted to be in comics. It isn’t the drawing of pictures I’m that interested in, it’s the telling of stories. This is just a natural extension of that process, and I hope to do more of the same.”
Brian also mentioned a wraparound Authority cover too…
